Our experience at The Hyena wasn't good. The acts weren't funny, it was a "painful" evening with a few forced laughs, when all we needed was a fun relaxing time. There are certainly better places for comedy in Newcastle.

Came here for my friends birthday and we had an absolutely marvellous time! It was very funny, bar prices were good and the comedians had me and my friend hurting with laughter. Places like this are needed in Newcastle! Will be back again

Not too vulgar and extremely well managed. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Three acts were varied and highly amusing. Well worth the entrance fee!

The Hyena club is well worth a visit for laughs galore. Easy to find, good prices for drinks and the venue is very clean and tidy. We thought the compere was superb, 1 act was poor but the main act was hilarious. It just depends...More
